Encourage students to think about what has just been read. Question cards cover concepts such as connecting to text/self/world and authors intent. Whether you are reading a class novel, participating in guided reading or learning about frogs… these question cards will encourage a broad range of thinking skills.
Select the appropriate set of cards for the text that is being read.
These cards are coded to make life simpler: aliens for fiction type texts
(16 question cards) or monsters for non-fiction texts (8 question cards). Black
and white versions also included. These contain the same questions as version 1.
Examples for use include:
* Select three cards before you read, discuss them as a class and then read the text. * Students then answer questions independently in their book. (Black and white versions are good for this! I print a heap out and keep them on hand.)
* Each student receives a question which they answer/explain to the rest of the group.
* Each pair/small group/table gets a question which they discuss. Share with the rest of class.
* Display a focus question on the board that gets asked each time you read a text for that week.
3 colour and 3 black/white pages. Prints on an A4 page.
